More tests

More character tests.  Trying to find a balance between clean illustration and the energy that comes from quick sketches and the faux screen print look seems to be working quite well for that.

Papageno silhouettes


Some preparation vectors for an experiment  but I actually like the way they look together as silhouettes.

More sketchbook stuff - characters





Some character development for Papageno, I'm having lots of fun with him so far and it's quite liberating to be doing lots of quick sketches.  It's also nice to be using traditional media like pastels, even if just for sketching.

Papageno's Mask




Playing around in Illustrator on my lovely new iMac.  I've been looking at a lot of graphic design blogs recently and I think it shows - you can never have too much white space!  The second mask is Papagena, Papageno's perfect partner, basically him in different colours.

Some Sketchbook Pages



Some work from my FMP sketchbook so far.  Working on character designs and repeating patterns mainly but annoyingly getting set back by being ill all this week.
